I’ve been interested in Planar type speakers.
I’ve researched two; Martin Logan and Magnepan. Two different theories of operation and design.
I’ve heard the ML s years ago; they sounded VERY good. (But I’ve read, they have reliability issues as of late) I know Best Buy stores (at times) stock them in the Magnolia section.
The Magnepans are quite difficult to audition here in South Florida; without driving 200 miles. I was interested in the MMGi model.
The ML s; I was interested in the ESL model.
Could I get your opinions and/or preferences on both?
My living/listening room is: 14’x15’×8’
I will be using the planars exclusively for stereo listening.
My audio and power equipment:
Simaudio Moon 260DT CD transport.
Schiit Gungnir Multibit DAC.
Tortuga LDR300 Preamp.
Class D Audio SDS470C amp. 300wpc.
I currently use JBL Studio 230 bookshelf speakers on 24" stands. I feel the JBL speakers are decent speakers; but they hold-back so much potential in midrange and highs, imaging and soundstage.
Any input would be very much appreciated.
Thank you for your time and advice,
